Tomorrow’s Man — or Yesterday’s

April 27, 2012
Patrick J. Buchanan

Among the GOP victories in 2010, none was sweeter than that of Marco Rubio.

The charismatic young Cuban-American challenged Gov. Charlie Crist in a Senate primary, ran him out of the party and swept to victory by 19 points in a three-way race.

Among those mentioned as running mates for Mitt Romney, it is Rubio who generates the most excitement. That he is young, Hispanic and conservative, and his place on the ticket might secure Florida, are the cards he brings to the table.

So it was a surprise this week to see Rubio being chaperoned over to the Brookings Institution by Sen. Joe Lieberman to take final vows as the newest neoconservative.

John Quincy Adams’ declaration that America goes not “abroad in search of monsters to destroy,” says Rubio, is an idea that he rejects.

A wiser guide, said the senator, is Bob Kagan, Barack Obama’s favorite neocon, who calls it a myth that America is in decline and who urges a more robust and interventionist foreign policy.

    If the Caucasian people that founded America don’t revolt we will lose America, what “our” forefathers founded. America was the only country that was ever truly free. After the war of northern aggression, that freedom was breached. Little by little for over a Century we have lost that freedom and will lose our country as well if “we” don’t reclaim our birth right.

    Pat is great as usual, the issue is funny but not as funny as Barnett
    interview wiht Netanyahu when she asked him what made him believe Iran was more dangerous that all other nations that have Nuclear power but never used it. Netanyahu began listing all the dangerous things Iran had done and was doing, but when he got to “assassination” Barnett eye widen wondering if Netanyahu realized he had listed exactly what Israel had been doing, Netanyahu realizing the similarities added “diplomats, assassinates diplomats”. Pardon me six Iranian scientist does match a third class diplomat. Barnett did not question and I wonder if Netanyahu wanted an opportunity to engage his litany “that is different, we are a special case given the Holocaust”

    Surprised Pat let that go by so did the Media, don’t tell me I am the only one that noticed.
